The European Commission regularly organises Roma Summits in order to bring together high level representatives of EU institutions, national governments and civil society organisations from all over Europe.

Inclusion of Roma is a joint responsibility of Member States and the European Union. The Commission monitors the progress made by Member States through the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies.

Roma summits are organised to take stock of the progress made in Roma inclusion at EU and national level and to renew commitments at the hightest political level.
